Legislative Fund Donations

Support Force Free Oregon's mission


FFO has a fund for outreach, support and advocacy to help promote and protect the values of our community. The uses of this fund are:


  • Creating educational programs to promote modern training methods, and resources to force free animal professionals.
  • Promoting humane dog training education and certification.
  • Helping efforts globally to ban aversive training tools.
  • Researching related legislation which would affect dog owners and professionals .


We have a huge goal and there exists resistance from individuals, groups and those

businesses that profit from selling and using aversive training tools. Aversive training

promoters and entities that can fund legal battles to try and stop any bans on these tools.


"Science always leaves the uninformed and profiteers of stagnation behind."


Unfortunately, defenders of these tools and methods have a lot to lose unless they catch up

with modern behavioral science and they are fighting against this fact every step of the way.

In fact the only ones supporting the use of choke, prong and shock collars are so called "balanced" trainers and the organizations supported by the manufacturers of these tools.


Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Certified trainers, Behaviorists, Humane Societies, FDA, SPCAs and many countries around the world all support Positive Reinforcement, Force free and, Fear free training / handling over the use of aversive tools and methods. Global bans on these

tools are picking up momentum and those who stand to lose money from them are on the

defense.

However, We stand on the side of Science, Truth and Experience. Not profits.


Legal research fees, DL Attorney fees are going to be more expensive the further along the

request / draft bill evolves. Since we are all volunteering our time and money at FFO, things

like printing, web hosting, harness purchases all add up quickly! Now we are over the start up

hurdle, overhead is very managable. We will continue our efforts to bring together all areas

of animal care and pet owners in our community for years to come!
